Although there are certainly people enjoying it, Fallout 76 hasn’t been the game most series fans were hoping for. Last week, Obsidian announced The Outer Worlds – a game from some of Fallout’s original creators that looks to follow up on the studio’s own beloved New Vegas. As you might expect, Fallout fans are excited to talk about it. So excited that mods of the main Fallout subreddit have had to ban discussion of the technically unrelated game.

A newly-reported CS:GO bug can give players a big competitive advantage simply by alt-tabbing out of the game. This wipes enemy players from your scoreboard.

One of Nvidia’s largest investors might be looking to sell its mammoth share in the graphics card company. The giant Japanese investment firm, SoftBank, is reportedly considering offloading a $3bn stake – a part of its ‘Vision Fund’ – at the beginning of next year due to Nvidia’s dramatic share price plummet as of late.

Intel has announced the successor to its 14nm CPU architecture. The Sunny Cove architecture is set to launch in both Core and Xeon server processors “later next year” and will be the first of their kind on the belated 10nm process.
A Hearthstone streamer – and Hearthstone fans can probably already guess who – has managed to gain more than 20,000 armour in a single game, thanks to the ludicrous combo powers of the now-infamous Shudderwock alongside new cards such as Ice Cream Peddler.
